Remarks: Brand new! First ERJ-170 jet for Chautauqua (and the 7th one built) spotted just a couple days after arrival from the factory in Brazil, being towed to a hangar. At the time of this photo, the plane was not in passenger service.
Remarks: Very impressive show of condensation as the pilot pulls into a high speed climb demonstrating the Raptor's power and handling. This one represents the 94th Fighter Squadron/1st Fighter Wing at Langley AFB. The Raptor is the newest, fastest, most high tech jet fighter in the world.
Remarks: This plane was flown by the 100th FS based in Montgomery, Alabama - the Alabama Air National Guard - and ran off the runway on landing after a flight display. He was unable to stop. The nose and nosegear are broken, but there were no injuries. Right next to it is N400FS, the only flying F-4J Fury, which also ran off the runway hours later after not being able to stop. Damage is unknown.
Remarks: SLC airport as seen from flight 884 at about 9,000 feet heading east. We took off on runway 16R - the one on the right of the photo where there are still 5 planes waiting - and made a climbing loop to the west.
